Scheduling for Elementary Success: Timetables to Embed Interventions and Teacher Collaboration
As we look to move beyond the realities of cohorting and timetabling constraints from the past year, how do administrative teams navigate the complexities of scheduling embedded collaborative time for teacher teams and interventions for students? Once time is established, how can we ensure it is maximized for student learning and teacher collaboration? This session will focus on a variety of innovative ways to design an elementary timetable focused on school-wide supports for students and embedded collaborative time for teachers, as well as structures and processes to consider once that time is provided. A portion of the session will be spent brainstorming and supporting administrators in reviewing their own timetables and planning for the upcoming school year. Come ready to leave with some ideas to impact your master timetable to help support the learning needs of students!
